ANTIPODEAN COFFEE CULTURE

WITH A NORTHERN ACCENT

Not only are we diametrically opposite our Antipodean cousins on the globe, but often in how we see the world. Words, banter and ribbings exchanged over cricket, rugby, warm flat beer or cold tinnies, all too wet versus far too hot. But when it comes to coffee, fair dinkum (as they say on the other side of the world) they beat us hands-down. While we languished in coffee-purgatory, Australians and New Zealanders created a coffee culture rooted in ruthless quality rather than convenience. Antipodeans just won’t buy crappy (or even average) coffee. It’s the best on the planet: they invented the Flat White, and the Long Black. They experiment with beans, blends, and temperatures; with baristas seen more like chefs than waiters.

And talking of chefs, the food on offer with their coffee is sunny and laid-back, creating a culture
beyond just the java-juice. Lucky enough to live in Australia for a few years, we noticed not only the cultural differences but the striking similarities. A shared ruthless pragmatism, a good sense of humour and a warmth befitting of any proper northerner. And for us, those similarities included a love of great coffee and laid-back, wholesome food – even if we didn’t make it back home. But all that was about to change. Returning to Manchester, inspired by the Antipodean coffee culture, we created Pot Kettle Black. A company dedicated to the art of brewing the best coffee and cooking-up vibrant, easy-going food. Sure the weather isn’t as sunny, but the personalities are.
